    Abandoned Camp- Bunker

    Well, it is an engineering supply cupboard, rather than a janitorial supply cupboard.

    The engineering room is dominated by a vast machine extracting geothermal energy and turning it into electricity. A pair of small, eight-legged spherical robot with eight arms is slowly touring the room, presumably keeping it (and themselves) in working order. A third such robot lies out of the way in the corner; it seems to have been cannibalised for parts by the other robots as its casing is open. Also lying nearby are some dead bodies, similarly garbed as the one in the computer room and equally mummified.

    This is just asking for a robot attack, but taking them out risks provoking them and that seems like an idiotic idea. He tries to sneak the hell around the most likely evil robots and searches the bodies. He also checks for dog-tags if British soldiers have those. It'd be best to be able to fake some sort of identification if these robots ask for it. Because they always do, and it's always followed by shooting.

Moving her hand from behind Nicholas' ear, much to his ire no doubt, Julie reaches back and tries to put her arm over Sophie's shoulders so she can draw her friend in close against the autumn chill.

    Sophie is pulled close. Nicholas doesn't seem entirely glad that the petting stopped, but realizes he has a chance to claim two laps now. Which he tries to do.
    "Thanks, Julie," she says sincerely. "But I don't think reliving those memories would be very healthy. I need to bury it all for good. It's just... easier to say than do."

    British soldiers do indeed have dogtags. There's two round discs, each identical, with the soldier's blood group at the top (AB), the soldier's number underneath (69513382), then his surname (Wood), his initials (A G) and finally an abbreviation for his religion- COE (Church of England).

    I asked Dad; he showed me his old ones. I made the details up, and Dad said the number doesn't start that high. My response? 'Post-apocalypse future bunker'.

    Also, the robots completely ignore (or maybe didn't notice) Justin. They aren't combat robots, however, designed and programmed for solely maintenance tasks. If they're attacked, they are programmed to flee.

    "So after you came to the Nexus, what happened? The monsters you'd been fighting there are pretty much your neighbors here. Heck, you're talking to one like she's your best friend as we speak. What's kept you from settling down and being that wife and mother you always thought you'd be?" Julie smiles faintly at the cat stretching itself across her lap. Cute little thing.

    Sophie thinks about the question for a while.
    "It did take me a while to adjust to the Nexus and the fact that supernatural people here don't hide like back home. It helped that I'd never considered supernaturals to be the enemy... unlike many of my fellow Hunters. But... I never thought about settling down. When I got used to how things work here, I went back to helping people. It's what I did before arriving in the Nexus... I just had to deal with different sort of problems." She pauses for a moment. "Besides, I decided never to pursue this sort of relationships again. Not sure why, really. You know how it is."

    "Not really, no. Before Eric I'd have never thought of staying exclusive to someone after splitting up with them, and even after he left there were temptations. You and I are just different beasts in that respect, and I'm not sure I'd understand it even if you explained it to me in full." She's not even sure Sophie herself understands, but it would be callous of her to say so.

    Justin takes the soldier's dogtags and gives a silent thank you Mr Wood. If he remember's he might come back to bury these guys some day, but for now he should leave. No sense in poking these robots with sticks to find out if they're hostile or not. Leave, leave, leave the creepy robot room!

    Following no more than a minute's delay, Alyca, dressed in pink sweatpants and a pink t-shirt, quickly opens the door to greet Justin. The boy she may or may not be crushing on.

    "Good morning! I am pleased that you stopped by today! What's up?"

    Alyca smiles. She crosses her fingers, praying that no weapons or briefs are out in the open for the world to leaf through.

    (You are amazing. I just wanted you to know that.)

    Justin waits patiently outside staring at the clouds. That one sort of looks like George Washington. And that one kind of looks like Abe- Is that the sound of a hydaulic arm? What no. Glog doesn't use that kind of tech. He's yet to see anything more advanced than a microwave. It was probably just some animal sound on the wind.

    When he's greeted by Alyca, he's all smiles. "Hey. It's been a bit. I've sort of been going around to see how you guys have been doing. Also see if you've picked new names?"

    Yes. Animal sound on the wind. That's definitely what it was. The mating call of an, ahm, Ala-hambra Rm'or birdie-beast. Yes. Definitively. That's what it was. >.<

    I knew they should've soundproofed the walls.

    Anyway!

    Alyca's smile falls faster than that of a kid realizing that summer vacation is over when she processes Justin's reply. This is...decidedly not good for her. Or for her love life.

    "Um..."

    "We've picked new names but..."

    "We're not guys. At least...at least we weren't when I last checked!"

    Abandoned Camp- Bunker

    In a sense, they're already buried. It's not a very ornate tomb, but it's far roomier than most.

    Anyway, the next door leads to a well-lit chamber with another three doors leading away from it. Looking at how they are positioned, one door leads into the room that is also connected to the computer system. In the center of the room is a large computer screen showing the British Isles. There's a series of symbols presumably marking bunkers on it; there's green ones, red ones, orange ones and a single blue one in the New Forest. Most are either red or orange. There's some chairs arrayed so they can see the screen, and one has another mummified corpse in it, this one much less formal than the others. He's wearing a pair of comfortable slippers, a white t-shirt and jeans. He's still wearing some dogtags, however, so he's still a soldier. He's holding a journal and a pen.

    Justin is lead by the arm to the rather nice couch. He looks around the room, but the dossier gets no special mind as he takes a seat. "That sounds great. Thank you," Justin says to Alyca. Wow, Popcorn, Leather couch, T.V., Internet based media viewing network. "You gu-girls have really adapted to technology really quickly. The other refugees have really bare bones cabins." he remarks.

    This is interesting. But before he goes looting a bunch of British Military. If only one is blue does that make here blue?

    Let's see what our eye witness has to say. He'll try to take the journal from the dead soldier. Hopefully he won't mind.

    Abandoned Camp- Bunker

    He doesn't mind! It's a diary for the year 2022. Most of the entries are rather boring. On the thirtieth of January, he was mobilized. On the thirty-first, war was declared with France. On the fifth of February, he was sent to this bunker in the Forest of Dean. On the fifteenth of February, the French invaded. By the fifth of March, they'd captured London. By the nineteenth of April, the French were close enough to the bunker that a large explosion (he doesn't know what it was) knocked down the cabin and blocked the bunker's door and knocked out communications. There's no further mention of the war. In the back are several pieces of paper that have been folded and used instead of pages; the first has, as its date, 'Thirteenth of May (?), 2029. It says they've run out of sugar. The rest of the pages are aligned more along the lines of lists than diary entries, dealing with how much of what they have left. When that's run out, it's more lists of dates and names, totaling nineteen names. Mr. Wood died on the 8th of July, 2029. The final piece of paper is written in a different hand; it has two names on it. Sgt. Smith, 19th October 2029, Pvt. Williams, any day now. It seems the British lost the war, the French either assumed the bunker was destroyed (as the British did) or never found it and the soldiers inside eventually starved to death as the bunker was not intended to be self-sufficient.

    With a swift press of a button, the channel changes to Channel 13. The Mag channel. All Mag all the time. And then to the movie listing.

    "Interactive videos. We were playing with the system's bonus features last night."

    Please buy the lie. Please buy the lie. Please buy the lie. Please buy the lie.

    So they weren't building in the Nexus, their building came to the Nexus. They were probably dead before they got here. Wow. I'm sorry you guys. It sucks to have ended up like this. It always hit him a little hard when he saw the results of a fallout shelter or a vault that fell apart from some twisted social experiment, mostly from subconciously putting himself in their position.

    But he's not through scavenging just yet. After handing back the journal, he searches the current room and moves on to the next one.

    Alyca and Miriah's Cabin...

    is in need of much better cover up protocols. Seriously, a dossier on the coffe table and a video feed to an interrogation room on their living room T.V.? Why would their even be a video feed to the T.V. from there? That's just bad design. That's like if Lex Luthor had a video feed of the Legion of Doom in his office lobby.

    Anyway, how's the kid taking this?

    "Interactive Videos?" That was a flimsy lie. A downright pathetic one. There's no way Justin could buy it... but it doesn't mesh with the rest of his data. These are two former slaves, not CIA agents. Two former slaves from one of the cruelest masters in the Cult of Dalachrech if he recalls correctly. They certainly wouldn't torture anyone after going through so much themselves.

    So even though he shouldn't believe it, and somewhere in that little blonde head he knows it, he will. "That's pretty neat," he says, having a hard time sliding into believing it. "Guess anything can be done here in the Nexus." By the end of that sentence, he's perfectly self-deluded.

    Yeah. Of course he'll believe it. CIA agents. Pfft. Of course they aren't! She'd have come up with a WAY better lie than that if they were.

    This wasn't a social experiment- it was pure bad luck. The designers assumed anything that would knock the cabin above it down would either spread the detritus away from the door, or destroy the bunker. They were unfortunately wrong. They had the food to survive three years, and did so. If they had a hydroponic garden, they could have lived down here till they hit old age.

    The chairs are in good condition and quite comfortable, though they're the only thing in here worth taking, apart from maybe the journal and the pen used to write it. Unless he wants to dismantle the computer screen for electronics. Either way, the next room is a barracks with ten beds, most of them occupied by mummified soldiers. At the foot of each bed is a locker, and there's a shelf above each bed. On most of the shelves are little mementos- photographs of friends, families, pets, little ornaments, old stuffed toys, and some books. The lockers, true to their name, are locked. There's two doorways leading away. One has no door, and looks to be a laundry. The other still has a door.

    He caught that this was definitely a different situation from the Vault but the empathy is still there.

    Let's leave most of the mementos alone. He'll flip through a few of the books, see if there's any he thinks Pansy might like. Lockers are pretty easy to unlock, almost childs play, for Justin. No seriously, he literally broke into lockers for fun as a child.

    The books are mostly fiction- there's some fantasy, some detective fiction, and some romance novels. There's also a Polish-English dictionary. They're also in quite bad condition- the soldiers were stuck down here for three years with nothing to do. All the books have been read many, many times by all twenty soldiers. Pansy asked for any book- he didn't mind which ones. These are maybe in too poor a condition to give as a gift as the bindings are broken and pages are falling out.

    In the lockers are some neatly folded clothing. Most of it is uniform, but there's some t-shirts, jeans, casual trousers and so on. In one locker are some old role-playing game books, the associated dice, and some fragmented paper character sheets, each used many times for many campaigns by the looks of things, each time the character was rubbed out so it could be used again. It looks like they ran out of rubber, though. In another is somebody's mineral collection, or that part of it that they couldn't bear to be parted from. It's all mainly personal stuff, but Bramble would be interested in the dice and minerals can fetch quite the price, though none are especially valuable.

    The fiction books, dice, RPGs, and character sheets all get sacked. The Huck Finn book Justin lent Pansy wasn't a great deal better than these books.

    After that he leaves and goes to the next door.

    [Alyca and Miriah's Cabin of Cover-Up]

    Interactive videos are so real, but the majority of people recognize them by another name exclusively! Video games! But Alyca is out of the loop of the video game empire so she doesn't know what they're usually called!

    The dossier and prerecorded video feed were to be reviewed in preparation for a top secret black ops mission! The dilemma with that was that inner sanctum isn't as comfortable or amenity-ridden as topside so they figured they'd watch it up here! A rookie mistake, but they're just learning the trade. And if push came to shove, they'd just brainwash Justin and wash their hands of the dirty work!

    "Yeah. Spectacular, isn't it?"

    An brand new black and white episode of Shirley Homies plays on the tele!

    "So, Justin, what do you do for a living? How's your girlfriend holding up with you out and about rescuing damsels in distress? Is she the jealous type or is she cool with it?"

    Alyca and Miriah's Cabin of Secrets and Brainwashing

    "What? Me?" Ohoho, this is going to be brilliant! Two people who won't tell each other what they do with their day. There's no way he'll let someone who thinks he's a hero know he's been a scavenger and a thief his whole life, or that up until he started squatting in a bowling alley, he's been sleeping in regular alleys.

    Wow, typing it out like that, Justin's a pretty sad case, and his only realization of it is that he thinks it's embarrassing.

    "I don't really have a job. My expenses are low and I have a lot saved up," he answers, referring to some buried treasure he split with Julie and hundreds of thousands of dollars of Pre-war hyper-inflated money he passes off as working cash. "I sort of do, I guess people here call them quests and adventures, to top off my savings or to keep my skills sharp. Also," he stumbles as he tries to spit it out, "I don't have a girlfriend." That's question was a bit surprising actually. Most people don't assume he has a Girlfriend. Most are somehow psychically aware he doesn't.
